Camden’s population is diverse, growing and continually changing, and is marked by significant differences in health experience and outcomes between the most and least deprived communities. Camden CCG plans and buys health services for everyone in the borough. We are a clinically-led and member-driven organisation, made up of 34 General Practices. 

Our vision is ‘Working with the people of Camden to achieve the best health for all’. Our mission is to working with our partners and the people of Camden to deliver health services that offer the best health for all, which are accessible, responsive and cost effective.

We are focused on the successful delivery, with partners, of two key plans; the North Central London Sustainability and Transformation Plan (NCL STP) and the Camden Local Care Strategy. The STP covers how health and care services will provide the entire NCL population with access to the best possible health, care and wellbeing services. 

The Local Care Strategy is focused on improving the health and wellbeing of people in Camden through proactive, accessible, good quality care. The strategy sets out a shared programme of work to deliver an agreed single model of care for health and care services in the future. 

Camden is a diverse borough containing both Hampstead Heath and its famous swimming ponds and the housing estates of Sommers Town, and is home to some of London’s most visited tourist attractions: the markets, streets and shops that have grown around Camden Lock and its associated music venues.

Following the recent approval by the five CCG Governing Bodies in North Central London (Barnet, Camden, Enfield, Haringey and Islington) to merge as a single organisation with effect from 1st April 2020 and NHS England’s approval of our merger application, we are moving forward with a single operating model.

This post is business critical to ensure immediate priorities are delivered within the NCL Strategic Commissioning Directorate, to allow progress in establishing the directorate which will be determined via a consultation process.

In accordance with the long term plan vision of transition from traditional provider commissioner relationships to working in collaboration with Providers, the new operating model establishes a Strategic Commissioning Directorate to enable greater consistency and coherence to achieve strategic commissioning priorities. This will be supported a new system accountability framework and performance framework to provide a consistent and comparable set of performance measures.

A key aspect of this directorate’s function will be working at scale with a single strategy and focus, and to drive consistency in the services we commission. As such the postholder will start to develop the NCL commissioning strategy for acute services and translating that vision into an implementation plan and supporting the Directors of Strategic and Acute Commissioning in its delivery. This will require identifying opportunities to achieve successful outcomes, and assisting in delivery.

The post holder will be responsible for evaluating our current position in terms of acute, and urgent care services and for achieving our future aspiration of operating as a single Integrated Care System.

The post holder will be required to work across NCL to realise the opportunities of a system wide approach to commissioning and contracting that builds consensus, enables integration and improved outcomes and include:

  • Supporting the development and implementation of the NCL CCG’s commissioning strategy


  • Supporting the development and implementation of an NCL wide outcomes framework to measure the effectiveness of the commissioning strategy


  • Developing and implementation of strategic commissioning initiatives that are designed to progress achievement of NCL strategic objectives


  • Implementation of NCL wide MTFS and repatriation initiatives for acute services
